Alphabet Blocks for a Geek Baby
"Amateur engineer/designer" Jonathan M. Guberman made his newborn son a set of custom engraved wooden alphabet blocks, with "things that his mother and I were looking forward to sharing with him" on 4 of the 6 sides. (See them all here)
"The only real rule I followed in choosing subjects was trying to maintain an even gender balance" which makes them even more awesome. (Of course, your choices for certain letters may vary)

"I think a major change in zombie behavior in this was if something were to bite you, well, you're still fresh, you're still able to move quickly. But now you don't think about yourself. You only think about where's my next bite, where's my next takedown. And you will run as fast as you can because you're still healthy, and you'll lead with your teeth to take the next human down..." says
Scott Farrar, visual effects supervisor of World War Z
, on the fast moving
zombies in the movie. [more inside]

Between Peter Jackson’s penchant for cartoonish unserious gore and Bob McCarron’s off-screen makeup effects manipulations,
Braindead achieves something that approaches inspired genius in the heretofore unknown artform of human carnage. The film is filled with moments of joyous slapstick tableaux... And then there is that moment where
Braindead finally breaks through to achieve a transcendentally surreal glory of excess where Tim Balme wades into battle against the zombies armed with a lawnmower, drenching an entire room in showers of blood. (
Braindead holds the record for the greatest amount of artificial blood ever used in a film). The film is a work of perverse genius.

is a fiendishly addictive and entertaining Mario Kart clone which has already taken up far too much of my week. Developers Conix Games
also made a top-down zombie shooter in the Robotron tradition called Daytraders of the Dead
, which is just about as addictive.
